Council provides financial sponsorship for events on the basis of competitive funding rounds (for more information, visit the Sponsorships & Grants Page). Separately, Council also provides assistance to event organisers in the form of ‘in-house’ support. The table below illustrates the type of support that Council can provide to event organisers.
Please note, you may be eligible for a reduction or waiver of the fees outlined below. As it is not financially practical or possible for Council to be involved or invest in all events, Council must limit its involvement according to its capacity and priorities. The Event Management Policy provides a description of how Council prioritises applications for support. Please speak to Council’s Community Development Officer for further clarification on your eligibility to receive a waiver of these fees.
Requests for Council Support for your event can be made via the Community Event Application Form. Alternatively, please email your request for support to email@example.com with a description of the event and the additional information requested below.
